Pohakuloa worker honored as employee of the quarter
Pohakuloa Training Area employee Aaron Carpenter recently was honored during a PTA town hall meeting as employee of the quarter for his outstanding contributions at PTA, specifically for being an invaluable member of the Air Traffic Control (ATC) Tower team at Bradshaw Army Air Field at Pohakuloa.
The contributions Carpenter made include revising and updating PTA’s Flight Data computers and volunteering for numerous projects to include training of additional personnel. Carpenter also personally assisted with training two Marine air traffic controllers to supplement PTA staff in order to extend unit training time.
“Aaron was lauded by both military and civilian aviation personnel for his going above and beyond attitude,” said Blake Doll, Air Traffic Control facility chief.
Doll said he and Carpenter’s fellow coworkers describe him as “an incredibly hard worker who can always be counted on.”
In a very short time period, Carpenter mastered tower operations at Bradshaw Army Airfield and then actively sought to train and educate others in order to overcome personnel shortages, said Doll. “Mr. Carpenter has been an invaluable part of the PTA family for over three years now, and continues to contribute to his ever-changing career field.”
